A portion of eastbound Highway 14 in Mankato was closed down Friday morning following a multi-vehicle crash. The crash involved 2 semi-trucks, a van, and 2 passengers cars, and happened at about 9:30am at the Highway 14 Minnesota River bridge in Mankato. An uninvolved vehicle spun out on the east end of the bridge, causing a semi-truck to slow down and be rear-ended by another semi, which caused the first truck to jack-knife into a van before striking 2 cars. The highway was reportedly icy at the time. The truck drivers both suffered minor injuries, along with the driver of one of the cars. The highway was re-opened at around Noon.
